Tilapia is great protein option to add into your lifestyle! As a nutritionist I know that healthy eating should be sustainable and convenient without sacrificing any taste. Tilapia is just a great source of protein, vitamin B12 that's is essential for healthy blood and red cells. Also naturally low in fat.

Protein can be super versatile; this comforting recipe for example, these other of my own recipes:

Check for your ingredients! I believe that it's so important to get quality ingredients no matter what type of lifestyle you follow or live by. When it comes to animal products I recommend getting grass-fed, wild-caught (or sustainably raised) and pastured raised whenever it's possible; that also means that animals were more likely to be treated better.

Key Ingredients in this Recipe:

Okay, so what makes enchiladas what they are is the tortilla, but we are using tostadas to keep things easier, cheese and the salsa; it can be green or red.... this time we are going green!

Of course tilapia, the base of out green enchiladas and that also adds some vitamins, nutrients and protein. Enchiladas are typically made with chicken but fun fact; my mom used to make tuna enchiladas growing up so this is why I decided to go with tilapia instead of chicken.

And for spices, adding real salt, pepper and garlic really amps up any taste and aroma to the recipes; a must and another sneaky way to get some micronutrients such as minerals from the sea salt.
